Harrison Ford to Join ‘Shrinking’ With Jason Segel For Apple TV+

Harrison Ford is ready for his first major TV role at the age of 79, as he has signed on alongside Jason Segel for the Apple TV+ series Shrinking, created and written by Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein.

According to Deadline, the series follows a grieving therapist (played by Segel) who starts to break the rules and speaks his mind to his patients, even if he is breaking his own training and ethics in the process.

Ford will be playing Dr. Phil Rhodes, who is described as “a down-to earth, sharp as a tack “blue collar shrink,” blunt but with an ever present twinkle. Phil is a pioneer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy who has built a successful practice over the years that he shares with his two young proteges, Jimmy and Gaby. Fiercely independent, Phil has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, which forces him out of his comfort zone as he grapples with intrusive friends, his estranged family and his legacy.”

The series will be produced by Warner Bros. Television, with Segel also acting as one of its executive producers.
